Books For Africa collects, sorts & ships books to students across Africa. The goal: increase literacy by ending the book famine in Africa.

Books For Africa is an organization with a simple name and a simple mission: to end the book famine in Africa. Having shipped more than 29 million books to 49 African countries, we are the world's largest shipper of donated text and library books to the continent. Based in St. Paul, Minnesota, since 1988, we have been operating locally and thinking globally for 25 years now.

This Give to the Max Day, help Books For Africa turn one container into two by helping us raise $10,000!

How will we do it?

This school year, the Minnetonka High School chapter of DECA is taking on a pretty big project with “The Land of 10,000 Books.”

Knowing the incredible opportunities waiting for them after graduation thanks to the great education at Minnetonka High School, these students want to share their resources with students in Sierra Leone. They are working to raise enough funds to ship 22,000 books to the Healey International Relief Foundation.

When we raise $10,000 on Give to the Max Day, we will turn this one container into two. We will send another full container of books to Sierra Leone as a part of this project! That's 44,000 books to be shipped to Sierra Leone!

Donate now to help us turn one container into two and ship 44,000 books to Sierra Leone!
